General advice

Research carefully

It’s vital to know what you want from your project before you get started. If you want to change your locks do you know what you’re going to replace them with? Or if you want to reinforce some of your doors do you know which ones? Decide on these details early so you don’t have to make rush decisions later.

Decide on a budget

Come up with a budget and stick to it. This will stop you spending too much or too little. It’ll also mean you spend less time looking into services and products that you can’t afford.


Locksmith project costs vary according to the products and services you want. To get a precise price, contact some local pros and ask them for quotes. But to give you a rough idea, here’s a typical locksmith project price guide:

Type of work Approx. cost
